DooF-a-Palooza: A Unique Family Food Festival

Where: Jack London Square

When: Sun., May 22, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: Farmers, chefs, magicians, and clowns all sharing a stage? Yep, DooF-a-Palooza, the "food educational experience," is back for a third run, this year in a larger space at Jack London Square. Your little Tusks and Perillos will thank you for introducing them to hands-on food activities with names like "shrimp splash," "throw dough," and "mega-pop challenge." Foodie mom heartthrob Joey Altman, Cal Peternell of Chez Panisse Café (what, you thought the Alice wouldn't somehow be represented here?), and, yes, Violet the Clown will all be on hand to lead cooking demos highlighting the healthy and the sustainable.
